Besides the pop-up scheduled for Thorndon there will be a brief one, 90 minutes at Te Papa : Level 4, 12:00pm to 1:30pm

The spatial plan underpins key policy directions. It influences zoning and the District Plan and guides Council’s investment in transport, community facilities, infrastructure, etc.

The draft Spatial Plan suggests potential significant changes for parts (or all) of Thorndon e.g.
proposed change from Inner Residential to Central Area District Plan zone.

The map below shows the extent of ‘eastern’ Thorndon proposed to be re-zoned as ‘Central Area’.

Thorndon is NZ’s oldest suburb. It has been carefully planned as an ‘inner city’ suburb and this has helped maintain the special feel of the place, at the gateway into city. (Central City tab)
